The Strand Magazine: New Steinbeck Article, Plus an Exclusive with Louise Penny, and fiction by Gar Anthony Haywood (Issue 67)
(A new Steinbeck article, fiction by Gar Anthony Haywood, Melissa Yi, and David Bart and an exclusive interview with Louise Penny)
In our 67th issue, we’re proud to present the first American release of John Steinbeck’s “How About McCarthyism”. Like his works of fiction, which are sure to remain classics for as long as people still read, this article, with its clear-eyed analysis of the relationship between democracies and demagogues, is as relevant today as it was in the McCarthy era. John Steinbeck penned this article when he and his third wife Elaine moved briefly to Paris. The couple fell in love with the City of Lights, and the great American author was so captivated that he chose to pen a weekly column called One American in Paris for a French literary magazine, chronicling his observations as an American. These were to be light-hearted fare—and yet Steinbeck, a keen social critic, was unable to entirely filter out his concerns about life back home and penned this prescient article.
This edition of Charles Dickens’s classic novel features a leather-bound custom cover with beautiful metallic foiling and a ribbon marker.
